Working together to shape the future of education

Silversmith TSA are a primary and early years specialist in outstanding teaching and training practice based at Dobcroft Infant School in south west Sheffield. Our aim is to provide and support the development and delivery of training and best practice in education through collaboration with our partners.

Teaching schools are part of the self-improving school led education system. A teaching school is defined as a group of schools and other partners who actively engage in collaborative improvements of the school system. Each TSA is tasked with the delivery of the ‘Big 3’:

Initial Teacher Training

In 2018/19 we are collaborating with Silverdale TSA to run their Early Years ITT.

CPD and Leadership Development

We facilitate a range of CPD and leadership opportunities. We are currently developing a programme of Early Years CPD with the Early Excellence Centre in Huddersfield.

School to School Support

We are in the process of recruiting Specialist Leaders of Education (SLE’s) and local leaders particularly in early years English and Maths. If you are already supporting schools and want to move to the next level, we would like to hear from you.

As a newly designated TSA (September 2017), our role in 2017/18 is to ensure we develop systems and infrastructure to deliver the big 3. We are on this journey!
